Training is a key tool for capacity building in the nation, which is a primary goal at CAARU. Regular trainings are conducted in the unit for external organizations, students and graduates of SQU and other institutions. The duration and the topic is tailor-made to the customer requirement. CAARU is conducting training programs and trainees need to pay for the training program. Fees are charged to the trainees.
